Rader promoted, to leave PCH Feb. 26 for Ga.

Mark Rader, chief executive officer of Pulaski Community Hospital, has been promoted within HCA, the parent company of Pulaski Community Hospital, to chief executive officer of Palmyra Medical Center, which is a 248-bed acute care hospital located in Albany, Ga.
“Mark has been such an important part of the leadership team in HCA Southwest Virginia,” said Victor Giovanetti, president of HCA Southwest Virginia said in a press release Wednesday.  “He has brought consistently strong leadership and management to Pulaski Community Hospital and to our entire Southwest Virginia region.”   
   Rader, who is 42, will continue in his role as CEO at Pulaski until Feb. 26.
“We are very committed to Pulaski Community Hospital, and a search for Mark’s replacement will begin immediately,” said Giovanetti.    
“I have really enjoyed working with the team of healthcare professionals at Pulaski Community over the past three and a half years,” said Rader.  “While I am excited about this new opportunity, I will miss working with such a fine team that we have at this hospital.  From all of our employees, physicians, volunteers, and members of the Board of Trustees, it will be difficult to say good-bye.”
During Rader’s leadership at Pulaski Community, the hospital has experienced significant renovation, the installation of a new fixed MRI, new digital equipment in the radiology department, and positive recruitment of physicians who have joined the medical staff. 
Under his leadership, the hospital has also gained accreditation of a Chest Pain Center, was named as one of the “Top 5 Places to Work” by the Blue Ridge Business Journal, and ranks in the top 10 percent of hospitals nationwide with quality indicators. 
However, Rader is very quick to give credit to the entire team at the hospital for all accomplishments that occurred under his leadership.  “Without the dedication of the team that we have in place, we would not be able to accomplish what we have in such a short period of time.  I am grateful to have been given the honor of leading this great team.”
While Rader is looking forward to his new endeavor, he added, “I am going to miss all of the wonderful people that I have met while at Pulaski, and I wish only the best for this community moving forward.  My family, including my wife Amy and daughter, Helen Renee, will all miss this community, the many civic groups in which we are involved, and the congregation of the First United Methodist Church.”

During his time in Pulaski County, Rader has been involved with a long list of organizations throughout the community, including: Pulaski County Public Schools Education Foundation, Board of Directors of the Health Planning Agency of Southwest Virginia, Board of Directors of the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce, member of the President’s Advisory Council for Radford University, Board of Directors for the Pulaski Free Clinic, Board of Directors for the Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley, member of the Pulaski Rotary Club, member of the Regent’s Advisory Council for the American College of Healthcare Executives, member of the Finance Committee for First United Methodist Church, and member of the Pulaski Encouraging Progress Steering Committee, according to Pulaski Community Hospital’s website (www.pulaskicommunityhospital.com).
Rader is a graduate of Radford University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and Duke University, where he received a master’s degree in health administration.

Pulaski Community, Lewis-Gale Medical Center, Montgomery Regional, and Alleghany Regional are members of HCA Southwest Virginia.
